“It is about the Putinization of Russia and its gradual return to the tenets of international law in the post-Putin era,” Kyslytsya said.
He added: “The Putin’s regime nears its end. At the same time, it has inflicted such heavy damage on the Russian society that it would take decades to bring Russia back to at least the level of democracy it achieved in the 90s over the past century.”
